Wexford Ladies Footballers face tough test on Sunday

Wexford Ladies Footballers face tough test on Sunday


The Wexford Datapac ladies football team take on Leitrim, the
Connacht champions, in the TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate championship
in Wexford Park on Sunday next at 12.30pm. This is expected to
be a difficult hurdle for Wexford against a Leitrim team that
put up a fine display against Sligo in last year’s All-Ireland
Junior final in Croke Park before succumbing on a 0-8 to 0-4 scoreline.
Leitrim had an indifferent league campaign and failed to make
the quarter finals. However, they have bounced back and had a
convincing 2-14 to 3-5 victory over Westmeath in the previous
round and will travel to Wexford full of confidence in their ambition
to go one better this year.

Encounters between Wexford and Leitrim have always been close,
with little separating the sides. Wexford had a few points to
spare over Leitrim in the All-Ireland quarter final of 2005, and
Sunday’s encounter is expected to be equally as tight. This will
be a very difficult hurdle for Wexford who had an impressive 7-19
to 1-6 win over Louth in the previous round, but they will have
learned little as the Wee county were not at full strength.

However, they have the ability to clear it as they posses players
of experience and skill. Panel: Mary Rose Kelly, Michelle Doyle,
Maeve Quill, Denise Kearns, Laura Corrigan, Karen Morris, Leona
Tector, Caroline Murphy, Naomi Fogarty, Fiona Rochford, Mary Leacy,
Sharon Kehoe, Deirdre Fox, Josie Dwyer, Ciara Scallan, Tara Moloney,
Georgina Moore, Bridget Curran, Lizzy Kent, Kate Kelly, Michelle
Hearne, Maeve Hughes, Julie Kelly, Eileen Hanrick, Kim Moloney,
Catherine Doyle, Martina Murray, Mag Kelly.
